I don't like grape nuts.
There, I said it! I do not like grape nuts or they're slightly healthier sister cereal from Kashi. I can't do it...! So, on this fast I have two choices, oatmeal, or oatmeal! That is if I want to get some whole grains in me before noon. I have been trying all sorts of new and exciting variations of oatmeal. Here is the latest and greatest! By the way, We are on Day 5 and feeling pretty good! I can't believe I've gone 5 days without any dairy products!!! Crazy talk!
One more recipe for the SOS Kitchen challenge!!! WOOT!
Nutty Apple Oatmeal: Serves 1. Prep time: 5 minutes Cook time: 5 minutes.
3/4 cup rolled old fashioned oats.
1 1/2 cups liquid. (water, soy or almond milk)
a pinch of salt
1 tsp coconut oil
half an apple chopped into tiny bits
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1 tsp cinnamon
a splash of your favorite "milk"
1 more tsp of coconut oil for the top.
Cook the oatmeal according to the packaging. (my measurements are from Quaker's rolled oats) and while your oats are bubbling away, start your coconut oil in a small pan over medium heat.
Add the apples and pecans to the oil after it's all warmed up, and toss in the cinnamon. Give it a good stir to coat the apples and pecans. Cook till just heated through, about 5 minutes. (I like my apples a little crunchy)
Bowl your oatmeal, add in the apples and pecans. Pour on some "milk" and add the other teaspoon of coconut oil. By the way, having just given up on butter 5 days ago I can tell you that coconut oil acts just like butter!!! It adds the smoothness and creaminess that you get from butter! It's amazing stuff! It's not salty, but there's salt for that isn't there?
Now for those of you not on the Daniel Fast, you can add whatever sweetener you like! It would only make this recipe that much tastier!
Thanks for reading guys!
